[Official] Starcraft 2 Strategy & Discussion Thread - Page 14

post #131 of 25315
Hey I haven't read anything in this thread yet because I'm scared there will be spoilers. Just came here to ask a question:

Will the Collectors Edition sell out forever/entirely any time soon? Or will it sell for atleast a month or two.


Just wondering

edit: also, has anyone tried maxing out SC2 with a 8800gts 512mb G92 @ 1680x1050? Thanks!

Awesome so far. I mean, I suck...but it's still fun. Got killed on campaign #3 on Hard, I guess I fotgot how to play Starcraft in the last 10 years. No multiplayer yet, maybe this weekend when I have more time.

There is a thorough backstory given during the install process, plus it includes a maybe 8-page booklet labeled Quick Start that is actually nothing but history/lore.

It has tutorial levels to play (which I skipped), tutorial movies you can watch at any time, and the campaign missions introduce you to units etc. slowly. So the learning curve is shallow I would say, but it is a long time before you reach the top of the curve. (Same with SC1.)

Should I pick it up?
Without question!

In SC1, I always thought Protoss were the most powerful...but for some reason I always liked playing Zerg.

I will be getting this game eventually. I have a GTX 470 on the way that I will be using. Would I benefit from using one of my GTX 260s as a physX card? I have read that using another card for PhysX with a 400 series card is a lost cause because Nvidia really stepped up the physx performance with their newest drivers. Is this true? I am trying to sell the 260s but I am having a hard time selling them. I wouldn't mind keeping one if it would work well for physx.

No Physx in SC2, but Mafia should take good advantage of it. :-)

Doh. I saw a screen shot that showed physics settings and assumed that it would have PhysX.

With my 4870 512mb, 1080p Ultra, no AA. I can definitely feel the slowdown whenever there are too many units on the map.

It really is a GREAT game. I was really surprised that campaign mode is no longer mission after mission after mission. I won't spoil it for the people who just started playing. Blizzard really put a lot of neat things in!

Playing it on normal mode. Not going to browse any more forums until I beat it.

i'm running everything at ultra on my 275 and it runs surprisingly well... the only time it slightly slows down is in the cutscenes but it's barely noticeable

After a couple of hours playing some campaign mode, I can confidently say: this game is disgustingly awesome. That is all.
